The structure on our new build goes up

Every day we can see new progress being made and the walls of our new build are going up fast. The block work is now up above window height and the scaffolding arrived at the end of last week. This is now all loaded with blocks and stone so that progress can quickly be made once the steel supporting beams are in.

I took my husband Peter to see the manufacturer of some solid wood windows which I really wanted to include in the build. As we stepped out of the car the smell of fresh red cedar engulfed us. As we were assailed by this wonderful smell I knew that convincing Peter to the merits of the windows was going to be an easy sell – Just don’t tell him! I wasn’t to know that the timber company would be sawing red cedar when we arrived, but I couldn’t have planned it better.

If you have a building project, interior or garden and landscaping project which you need help with or ideas for then please give me a ring: Alison 01572 747318 or 07973843020.

I work on interior design and garden design projects in Stamford, Lincolnshire, Oakham, Uppingham and Rutland as well as further afield. I will design a garden to complement the architecture of your home and choose the right landscaping materials to complement it. If you are frustrated with endless searching for the right fabric or wallpaper and paint colours and overwhelmed with the enormous choice, then allow me to make a handpicked selection for you. I will complement the style of your existing rooms and provide a few choice pieces which will bring the whole look together.
